The Racing Ralph is lightweight and features a unique tread pattern that has gathered fans from around the world. The Racing Ralph is fast due to the off- center central tire pattern. This design allows you to reach high speeds but doesn’t skimp on grip. The side knobs provide excellent traction while cornering, but aren’t too aggressive, therefore the bike is still agile.

      Comments about Schwalbe Racing Ralph 29" Evo Tire:

      I found these tires to be fast rolling and good on buttery smooth trails...However, They will not hold up well on rocky, technical terrain. I had two of these tires fail at the sidewall in almost the exact way.

        Comments about Schwalbe Racing Ralph 29" Evo Tire:

        These tires roll fast, spin up quick and are pretty sticky on all the trails I've ridden in the mid-west. I even rode one on the rear for a week in Moab. That said, they are basically a race day tire. It says as much on Schwalbes website, so don't expect them to survive sharp rocks. They are designed for speed, not durability.

        Comments about Schwalbe Racing Ralph 29" Evo Tire:

        These are my favorite racing tire for courses that don't have a lot of sharp rocks. Excellent on the East Coast terrain. Grips great on the high speed corners and rolls fast. Unfortunately, once I left the course and used them to ride my favorite rocky local trails they basically fell apart. Like others said the sidewalls are paper thin.

            One ride through Southwest rock garden and the sidewalls are completely shredded as if they were made of paper.

            Comments about Schwalbe Racing Ralph 29" Evo Tire:

            I ride 3-5 Times a week in the dry rocky conditions around Phoenix AZ and it just destroyed this tire. They worked fairly well on dry kitty-litter consistency soil and even handled themselves in muddy conditions. After about 100 miles on my front and rear set, I have put a fatal tear in the rear's sidewall, and the front has lost most turning capability in hard pack and pavement due to corner nobbies are ripping (which is common with schwalbe tires) I've already had a set of Nobby Nics and did not care for them. These are also very expensive for the quality of the product

            Comments about Schwalbe Racing Ralph 29" Evo Tire:

            Ive tried all 3 sizes and I have been happy with all of them. They roll fast, corner well, and are very light weight for 29" tires. They do pretty good on loose over hard pack, but they excel on socal hard pack.

            Comments about Schwalbe Racing Ralph 29" Evo Tire:

            I've gotten some pinch flats even with stans. For an XC race tire thats light they grip fantastically. They just wear fast. In about 500 miles I have a few holes on the treadside and a few small ones on the sidewall. One hole is to big to fill with stans. For race tires they are great.

            Comments about Schwalbe Racing Ralph 29" Evo Tire:

            Was really excited to try these tires and they are fast. 29in wheels get up to speed very quickly. The problem was that even though they are supposed to be compatible to convert to tubless, in doing so the sidewall split with less that 60 miles on them. I spoke to the Schwalbe Distributor in OZ and they said to try a tyre with snakeskin protection. While I don't disagree with this advice, I would prefer that if they market the tyre to be tubless compatible then design a sidewall tough enough to be practical. As I said earlier, with thin sidewalls it is best to stick with groomed trails.
